Stop the Presses!

Hi James,
Is it too late to include the closing of the Beverly Hills Trader Vic's in TRT2?

looks great!! however, if you want to save room for more info and pics of bars, then ditch the section on drinks and hawaiian vocab.....let's face it, grog log is the source we mainly use for drinks and there are dozens of books about hawaiian language......if you had the room, great!! i would say include all that, but if you are coming up short, get rid of those sections...i would rather have more info about the places as opposed to how to speak hawaiian and more rehash of drink recipes......tiki road trip is the source to go to to learn about and locate tiki places.....i feel you should focus more on that......yes, i see the relevance to having the other sections but, why use up valuable page space on yet another zombie recipe....I think more photos of places will really add to the book and enchance it further as a reference source, for now and future tiki enthusiasts...we can get drink recipes and hawaiian vocab from a 100 other sources.........just my 2 cents. as usual.



I think an important thing to remember is that any company that is going to publish a book like this isn't publishing it just for the members of one internet forum. This book is probably going to be picked up by lots of people who just think it sounds interesting when they're strolling through Barnes & Noble or whatever.

Also, folks who are joining this community but may not know of things like the Grog Log or other sources of information might really appreciate having the other content as well. If we want to bring Tiki back and do it right, wouldn't it be better to get the newbies off on the right foot with some of the very content you're suggesting he omit?





.....did you not read my post carefully?? I said if you are pressed for room in the book, don't put that stuff in..and furthermore, if newbies don't know about grog log and other sources...maybe they should get off their fat asses and start finding out about it and other sources...do we have to spoon feed every new individual that comes along the same ol' crap..?? cripes!! get with it!! part of the enjoyment of this is finding out stuff on your own, but you have to be self motivated...not sit around waiting for others to show you the way.

Does somebody need a hug? Or is this just misplaced Bears fan anger?

TipsyMac, any word on tiki doings in Chicago this spring/summer?

Tipsy!

If 'ain't shit' includes regular FOM meetings, DvA Gallery's third annual Tiki show (how could you forget that - aren't YOU in it?), stuff at Tiki Terrace almost every weekend, and at least one TRT2 signing (date/place TBA), then yeah, we ain't got shit... oh, and what other state has TWO major-ish Tiki weekenders in one summer (Exotica/Eyeball)?

I'd say that ChiIL is the place to be this summer.

Stop the presses, indeed.

The book is already at the printers.

Every text change (even just adding a comma) that I make after the printer gets the book costs me $17 (out of my own pocket) per change to make - assuming the actual process of printing hasn't commenced yet. If graphic desgin tweaks are called for, then that gets REALLY expensive.

But let's just say that TVBH cost me some cash late last night...

Ink goes to paper any second now...

http://www.tydirium.net/tiki/tikiroadtrip.html

Ladies and Germs, as you all know, Tiki Road Trip 2 will be in your hot little hands in less than a month.

Tiki Road Trip has been called "The book I wish I wrote" by Charles Bukowski, Kurt Vonnegut, John Steinbeck, Hunter S. Thompson, and George Orwell (not really... but if any of them were alive, they surely WOULD HAVE said this).

Although "Tiki Road Trip" is a really freaking great title for a book, "Tiki Road Trip: 2nd Edition" doesn't really pop as well as it could.

In coming up with this ultimately milquetoast rethinking of the intially snappy title for this book, many options were explored, such as:



Around the World with 80 Suffering Bastards

Kon-Tiki Road Trip: Across the Pacific by Mobile Exploration Lab

Tiki Road Trip: I Drink in Shitty Bars So You Don't Have To

Tiki For Dummies

Lolita*

Tiki Road Trip, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Crappy, Syrupy, Mai Tais.

How to Win Friends and Influence People to Drink Zombies

('four symbols' - 'zoso', et al)

Tiki Road Trip 2: Electric Boogaloo

Tiki Road Trip Strikes Back

Tiki van der Road Trip the Younger

The Great Gatsby**

Encyclopedia Tikiroadtripa

Tiki Road Trip: Now With 30% More Tiki Goodness

Tiki Road Trip: No, Really, I DO Know Shag... NOW Will You Sleep With Me?

Fac-Tiki-Totem

The Tiki Road Trip of Our Hung-Over Discontent



All right, these are getting worse by the moment.
Hey kids!
Add your own!

* = turns out this one was taken. Who knew!
** = ditto.
